Nelly Korda, an accomplished LGPA golfer, has decided to withdraw from the upcoming JM Eagle LA Championship, marking the end of her bid for a historic sixth consecutive victory.

Her decision comes after her impressive fifth straight win at the Chevron Championship near Houston, where she joined the ranks of Nancy Lopez and Annika Sorenstam. In a statement on the LPGA Tour website, Korda expressed that the decision was not easy but was driven by her physical and mental exhaustion after enduring four events in the past five weeks.

Reflecting on her recent triumph at the Chevron Championship, where she secured her second career major, Korda acknowledged the demanding toll it took on her. She emphasized the importance of listening to her body and prioritizing rest to ensure she remains prepared for the challenges ahead in the 2024 season.
